- Frère Jack x Jules Gabriel – ‘Bisous’
The latest collaboration between the lo-fi electronic artist with a pop touch, Frère Jack, and the singer and performer with an emotional voice. Jules Gabriel, ‘Bisous‘, is an admirable, indie electronic ear-candy that will keep you addicted for days. 3 minutes of infinite pop bliss are more than enough for the ideal energy boost! On repeat!
- The Sunshine State – ‘Cliff Drive’
Simply cannot get enough of The Sunshine State‘s indie pop mayhem, ‘Cliff Drive‘; It’s a track that has it all, the pace, the energy, the chorus, the divine vocals but above that vivid, indie pop spirit that very few indie acts manage to unleash. The new project of songwriter extraordinaire Skyler Stonestreet, is a must-check for the year of the pandemic! You don’t wanna miss this, right?
- Still Years – ‘Dreamhackers’ (Featuring Rubee True Fegan)
The collaborative single between New Mexico’s Still Years with Germany-based artist Rubee True Fegan, ‘Dreamhackers‘, is a gloomy post punk gem, filled with tons of 80s nostalgia, addictive synths, and the ghost of “Joy Division” all over their sound. It’s dark, but also catchy, it’s 80s but also current… Goth love!
- Worker & Parasite – ‘Realpolitik’
‘Realpolitik‘ by Aussie collective Worker & Parasite, sounds like a hiden treasure that sprang out from the “forbidden” 80s, featuring sexy, angular, a la Gang Of Four, riffs, a synth-punk attitude reminiscent of great band Servotron, male/female vocals in the vein of 80s leftfield, no wave, New Yorkers, 3 Teens Kill 4, and guess what? The song is dealing with ‘the problems of participating in ‘democratic’ politics in a broader environment specifically structured to alienate the participant‘. 100% political!
- Will George – ‘Rescue Me’
Singer-songwriter Will George has gifted us with a stunning vocal performance, in his latest single ‘Rescue Me‘; An americana pop track unleashing a sentimental vortex, with the artist ‘exploring a period in his life when he was struggling with anxiety and self-worth, and looking to relationships to fill that void‘. Instant crush!
